Questions on Routine Maintenence

Whats going on guys? I finally found the truck i'm getting. Its a 2000 F-350, crewcab. Awesome truck with low miles. I'm very mechanically inclined however I am new to diesels/trucks. What do I need to know for this truck to keep it in mint condition (Mechanically)? Whats the best oil? Best filters? How often are you guys changing your oil? How often are you changing fuel filters? Trans fluid / filters? Are there fuel additives you use? ETC...


I'm looking for guys who are very meticulous with their trucks. I just want this thing to last for a while and do whatever is needed to keep it up. I know keeping up with routine maintenence is the major key.

Thanks for any help...

oil filter either mobil1 or motorcraft.
oil is up to you, i am running motorcraft its plenty cheap n good. 5 qt's instead of 4.
dello and rotella are well known and great too.
and synthetics will cost you alotttttt.
i go 4k between changes, i tow moderately and do lots of 6 mile trips to work and such so i dont want to go any longer..
fuel filters every 10K imo.
and air filters well i live in dirt so im going to be doing mine again soon here. gonna do a diy intake probably cuz its plenty cheap.
thats about it.
